Hey, Rob,

I've been trying, unsuccessfully, to get a Canon PIXMA MX422 (same as the
MX429 sold at Walmart) working.  It's a newer all-in-one printer.

I downloaded both source code and rpm tarballs from Canon Singapore. The RPM
wouldn't install because it needed libusb v.1.0.1 which is much higher than
what I have.  Similar library dependencies prevented me from successfully
compiling (autogen.sh & make) all of the source code files.

So what was your secret?

Coming back to your question, Ken, I have a Canon Pixma MX870. I have
summarized the instructions to set this up at

Since the models are very similar, it might work for your case.


I agree with your recommendation.

Thanks for the link.
